This should probably go in the 'annoying/can't understand thread'

But over the last year or so (since I stopped playing football after my achilles tendon op) I have started to go to the gym. Not a fancy one or anything like that, its not overly large or busy and suits my needs. I have mini OCD so have a routine that I like to keep which is a mixture of weights and cardio.

But what really grinds my gears are when people will sit at a piece of apparatus that I want to use, and piss about on their phones. I really want to ask them if they plan to use the equipment but don't want to cause any confrontation!

I play with my phone between sets (I'm normally jotting down what I've just done, and what I'm gonna do next) and they might be doing the same.

If they're sat there and genuinely doing nothing just ask them politely if they're finished.

That happens all the time where I go. Some spend more time farting around with their headphones/phone/mp3 than on the equipment. Added to the annoying list are the people who don't wipe the equipment down.  No

Oh I know the difference between the folk that are checking their phones etc during sets, I do this briefly myself. I didn't time it, but there was one fella that must have been sat on the chest press machine for about 5 minutes without actually doing anything. (I had noticed as the machines I was using pretty much face where he was)

To be fair, my gym is never hugely busy so there generally hasn't been a time where I have been struggling for a piece of apparatus so its really a very minor 'gripe'.

If anyone fancies doing a tough mudder next year then shout. I am hopefully doing it in august at Badminton. Be good to raise some money for a charity.
